How You Can Help

   Images and Data
The primary goal for this website is a complete database of images for all soccer stamps and philatelic material along with catalog and issuing information for each item. Currently images are available for 65.75 percent (4478 images out of 6811 listings) of the database. In order to keep this manageable I'd like to work with the database one subset at a time. As each subset nears completion, I will begin looking for images from other subsets. Click on the link below for a list of stamps that currently do not have images.

                                      Stamps from A Countries (87.96 percent complete, need 49 images)
                                      Stamps from B Countries (77.55 percent complete, need 123 images)


If you have any of these stamps and would like to help, I would appreciate receiving a scan of the issue. The stamps should be scanned at 300dpi on a black background. Black stock pages with clear liners are great for this. After scanning, crop the stamp so that it has a small black border. Additionally, if you notice any incorrect or missing data, I would appreciate knowing about that as well. Each stamp page has a link in the center under the title that can be used to contact me to send images or data concerning that particular stamp.
   Postal Stationary List
The Postal Stationary list has now been uploaded to the website. If you know of any additional items that are no included in the lists or if you have any scans of items on the list, please contact me. material along with catalog and issuing information for each item. Currently images are available for 62.50 percent (30 images out of 48 listings) of the postal stationary items in the database.

If you have any of these items and would like to help, please scan both the front and the reverse following the procedures outlined above under the stamp section.
   Auction
Do you have any extra items in your collection that you would like to sell? Post them in the Soccer Philately auction. The auction is entirely free for both buyers and sellers. Auction listings can be automatically relisted at no cost so there would be very little time involved after the first listing. There is also a bulk listing feature to upload multiple auctions at a single time.
   Articles, Literature, and Exhibits
A final avenue that the users can help in improving the website is through the submission of articles or exhibits. Do you have a favorite item in your collection? Have you had to research an item to find out what it was? Do you have an interesting story to relate about a particular issue? If so, feel free to write an article concerning any aspect of soccer philately, illustrate it with a few images, and I'll post it on the website. If you have a catalog relating to Soccer Philately and wish to review it, I'll post that as well. Do you exhibit at shows? Send me scans of the exhibit pages so that others can enjoy it too. Contact me if you have any questions or want to submit an article.
